As the fate of the European Union's Lisbon Treaty hangs in the balance, specialists in European institutions will welcome this update of a text at the theoretical end of the spectrum. The author goes carefully through federalism, neofunctionalism and the other "isms" of the subject before setting out his own tightly argued analysis and recommendations.
Employing innovative but effective terminology, he offers a stimulating discussion of the problems of creating a more democratic and citizen-friendly EU. His arguments, which draw on psychology, politics and sociology, will help students to see debates about Europe's "constitution" in a wider perspective.
Who is it for? Students with some factual knowledge of the EU's institutions.
Presentation: A clear guide through some intricate subject matter.
Would you recommend it? Yes, strongly, in the right context.
